Warming up in the sinus can have beneficial effects only if it is done in time, that is, when it will appoint a physician. For example, in acute inflammatory process it is impossible to do, but warming could be useful during rehabilitation.
In some cases, warming up in the sinus can not be done
It is impossible to carry out any procedure warming during an acute inflammatory process - it will contribute to the spread of infection by dilated blood vessels and the appearance of complications.
It is especially dangerous to conduct such procedures at a high temperature - it may cause even greater lift and its violations of the central nervous and cardiovascular system: convulsions, heart rate, blood pressure drops, and so on.
But at normal temperature sometimes can not be done warming, for example, in the form of chronic polypoid sinusitis
Chronic sinusitis - the effect on health
- Sprouting polyps in the nasal cavity and the maxillary sinus - it will encourage new growths. There are other contraindications for heating in the sinus, so do not do warming procedure without a prescription.
Warming the procedure at home
Start warming procedures may be in the case, when the maxillary sinus is not pus, or bleeding. Independently learn about the patient can not, you need a check-up, x-ray and laboratory control.
But if the doctor allowed to hold warming, then at home, you can do the following procedures:
- cook hard-boiled eggs, peel it, cool slightly, to not burn the skin and roll on the face in the projection of the maxillary sinus, until cool;
- warm in a skillet large salt or sand to pour into a small bag made of thick fabric, cool slightly and wrap a towel to apply to the affected area and hold until cool;
- black radish grate, put a little gruel in a bag made of thick fabric, attach to the affected area, cover with a small piece of wax paper, cotton wool and cover with a towel; keep the hand wrap for 10 minutes.
Physical therapy in the treatment of sinusitis
Physical therapy procedures carried out in a clinic or hospital, and also have their indications and contraindications.
In acute sinusitis
Acute sinusitis - occurs as the inflammatory process
physiotherapy is usually carried out before in the inflammatory process moved in from purulent (catarrhal) in purulent. Assign solux, UHF. In severe pain in the acute period prescribed diadynamic pulse currents - they have a pronounced anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
Subsequently, as a reducing treatment prescribed microwave therapy, electrophoresis solutions of various drugs (initially this antibiotic and anti-inflammatory analgesics, and then calcium chloride and bromine). Electrophoresis can be conducted, both external and endonasal introducing the electrode into the nasal cavity.
With regenerative treatment of sinusitis are different physiotherapy with ultrasound - it has a positive, slightly massaging effect on the tissue, restoring them metabolism

and circulation. Ultrasound can also be used together with the drug solution, facilitating their delivery to tissues - a technique called phonophoresis. Phonophoresis, as well as the electrophoresis can be carried out externally and endonasal, with the introduction turundy soaked with a drug solution, into the nasal cavity.
Of great importance in the treatment of sinusitis have medicinal inhalation. They can be used in acute disease course (with antibiotics) and in the step of the reducing treatment. For administration of drugs in the idea of aerosols in the maxillary sinus, there are special machines that make nasal variable (negative and positive) pressure. Negative pressure promotes the removal of sinus secretions, and the positive - they enter the drug in aerosol form.
In the process of recovery also used various warming procedures - paraffin and ozocerite baths and mud
Mud - a pleasant and useful procedure
Which in addition to warming has also chemical effects, contributing to the restoration of the tissues of the maxillary sinus and preventing the development of disease recurrence.
Warming at home and physiotherapy may benefit only when performed by a doctor under the X-ray and laboratory control.
